Directly south of the city of Piedmont and east of downtown Oakland is the charming community of Crocker Highlands, also referred to as Trestle Glen. The remaining trestles that can be found in some of the homes here pay homage to the old commuter rail system that used to service many of our East Bay communities.
Curving roads lined with greenery pass neighborhood parks and lead to a variety of Craftsman, Prairie, and Neo-Mediterranean style homes from the '20s, '30s and '40s, many designed by famed architects Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck. In fact, many of Crocker Highlands' residents belong to the Lakeshore Homes Association, the second oldest homeowners association west of the Mississippi. This group is still dedicated to preserving and increasing the "wonderful natural beauty of the property" and making sure that "no home can ever be damaged by any unsightly or undesirable structure upon adjacent property or in any section of the tract."
Nearby conveniences include a variety of retail including the lively shops and restaurants of the Grand Lake/Lakeshore area.
